“It's a lyrical and rapturous film — a repressed passion play, funny, delicate and heartbreaking.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety.

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel and starring Saoirse Ronan, On Chesil Beach focuses on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night.

NR; 110 minutes
